"Let us be Grateful to people who make us Happy, they are the charming Gardeners who make our Souls Blossom"

We went to our local Costco early this morning as a CERTAIN SOMEONE(SAVED for my Brush with fame game Monday) was their signing his books!!!!Sounds familiar doesn't it, me going to a book signing!!!!
My lovely daughter and grand daughter came with me this time!!!! WE had a full day of things planned so she kind of had to come along!!!!!
While waiting in line, I decided to do a little window-warehouse shopping!!! I want this little fairy godmother cleaning wand, it is ultrasonic and it cleans away dust mites and germs!!!! WOW with just a wave of the wand!!!!Poof the ickeys are gone!!!!
We were planning on meeting my daughter's best friend who she has known since middle school for lunch today, however she called and said her allergies were bothering her so much she could not make it. So sorry Liz, we will do it in a few weeks!!!!So we decided to meet C.J. for lunch here as it is right by the Law office he works at.

We sat outside as the weather was perfect and this lovely clocked chimed away every 15 minutes, it was so charming, and Camdyn LOVED it!!!!
Camdyn having some Italian bread!!!
The family sitting al fresco!!!
Corie and I both had the Butternut squash Ravioli and the gnocchi, the Ravioli was to DIE for!!! It tasted like Pumpkin Pie!!!! So very good!!!
After lunch, a few returns to the mall, a Dr. appt. and a stop at the Bakery to drop off some thing so they can make the Perfect Cake for some one's 2nd Birthday Party we had to have a 2 for the price of 1 cupcake!!!!
Then tonight!!!! Let the Party begin!!!! My neighbor and great friend Jeannine has turned 40!!! So the ladies on the street decided to take her out to dinner to celebrate!!!! The Restaurant we chose will Pick you up and drive you home!!!!Corie and Michelle met us there as they went early to set up and decorate a little!!!!Why is it, I did not get the memo to wear BLACK!!!!
Having fun on the ride over!!!
Women are just grown up little girls!!!
D-Vine for a DIVINE friend!!!
She is just the sweetest and most generous and nicest lady ever!!! She cooks so unbelievable, she will cook dinner and bring my hubby and I over food!!! Can you believe that!!!!My daughter always says "Mom you truly live on Wisteria Lane minus all the drama and bad stuff", it is such a fun neighborhood!!!!
The girls!!!!!
Blowing out the candles!!!Then the cake was cut and passed out, after that, the cake was handed over to Miss Sandy(she owns her own preschool so I call her Miss Sandy as that is what all the kids call her) and she sat it down on the crowded table and POOF, it fell on the floor!!!!
Good thing we all got a slice!!! Sandy felt SO bad!!!! We all thought it was hilarious!!!!
Then it was time to open gifts!!! Here is my new rule, if you go to a restaurant for a birthday party, bearing gifts wrapped in cute gift bags, LEAVE THE TISSUE PAPER AT home!!!! It can CATCH ON FIRE!!!!!!!
Some how the tissue paper got into the candles and caught on fire, I was snapping away(I am after all the Paparazzi) and some one (later to be told it was my daughter) was screaming FIRE-FIRE!!!!!It was a big fire--FAST!!!!
several Men eating at the restaurant ran over, one was a fireman, but they picked up water glasses and put the fire out!!!!
we were all laughing, wondering, what in the world just happened!!!!
The mess after the FIRE !!!Luckily none of her gifts were destroyed!!!!
I got her a crown planter, luckily my gift didn't catch on FIRE!!!!!!

Wish I was there,

What a fun time. I don't believe bonfires in an eating establishment is quite proper but oh so funny. And you bloomed like a spring flower among all the black. I am glad you had a wonderful day. By the way does the magic wand work?
